Offering a Menu of Customizable Services Since 2007.
Tailor Our Services to Fit Your Needs.
  • Especially for seniors. Assistance with locating a new place to call home. Based on your existing and future needs, we can help you find the perfect home. If you are interested in communal retirement living, such as an independent or assisted living community, our easy-to-use SENIOR Living Missouri and Kansas page lists both options. With over 100 communities in the Kansas City Metro, we're certain you'll find several to visit. If you need assistance, we can set up appointments and get you to and from the Community. We're here for you! 

  • Just like many other life projects, downsizing begins with setting and defining goals whether you are planning a future move or staying in your existing home. A true desire to simplify your lifestyle is where the journey begins. Working closely with you, we'll help identify the important goals and action steps that will enable you to reach your desired new lifestyle.

  • When you find yourself completely overwhelmed by your stuff, the sorting through and paring down process steps can become too big, too fast. This step by far is often the most difficult and time consuming for many. Knowing where and how to begin can be frustrating and often ends in minimal progress made. Acting as coaches and helpers, we work closely with our customers to determine the best approach for optimal results. We're part of your team!

  • Again, you don't have to be moving to define or redefine your living environment. Staying in your home or moving, our space planning service can help to design a comfortable, clutter-free environment that meets your needs.

  • We offer pre and post-move solutions. We'll pack your belongings, align the right mover and supervise the move. We'll also unpack and get you settled in as quickly as possible. Start-to-finish services, the move process is handled with timely proficiency.

  • If you have a house to sell, our design backgrounds enable us to stage your home for the real estate market. If you decide to sell before you move, packing up any excess in the home will give potential buyers the opportunity to see the features of the home. And if you need assistance with hiring a real estate agent, we can help with that also. Realtors along with other service-related companies will be listed on our new Resources page--be sure to take a look. 

 

  • Due to the amount of downsizing work we are currently undertaking, we've put our estate sale services on hold until Summer, 2022. We will be happy to consult with you regarding your sale, primarily about the content and value. Based on the consultation, we will be able to refer you to appropriate sale companies within the Greater Kansas City area. EstateSales.net is a good source for estate sale and auction companies in the KC Metro (and Nationally). As we've done for 20+ years, we will continue to purchase certain antiques and collectibles. For a listing of items we purchase, please call, email, or use the Contact Us page to obtain the list.

  • Coordinating and managing a house cleanout. This service is essential when the homeowner, family, or estate manager needs the contents of the property cleared out. Cleanouts are assessed and priced following a thorough walk-through of the property and consultation.

~ SEMINARS ~

We've been giving seminars for many years and we know how important they can be for Seniors struggling with making a downsizing decision. Covering the major steps involved in downsizing a household, our seminars touch the often hard to verbalize roadblocks that can stand in the way of simplifying life--from the emotional to the physical. The information is presented in a relaxed manor and encourages attendees to participate and share their struggles and victories with one another.

 

For information about our Downsizing Seminars for your senior living community or not-for-profit group*, please contact Cindy Murphy at: cmurphy@downsizingsimplified.com or 816.358.6338.

Information requests can also be sent through the Contact Us page.

In development for a 2022 launch is our virtual Downsizing Seminar hosted through Zoom. These virtual seminars will enable us to connect with Senior Living Communities and their potential new residents across the U.S. We're very excited about this new seminar option and will post updates as they become available. In the meantime, if you are a Marketing Manager of a Senior Living Community and would like more information, please contact us.

*Many not-for-profit groups book our "Getting Organized" seminar which focuses on de-cluttering and organizing.
